Mountain Climbing and Trekking
Mountain climbing in Africa offers amazing insight into the continent's wild world. With every few feet climbed or hiked, you'll see subtle changes in the flora and fauna on all sides. You'll find giant lobelia and oversized ferns where, above the montane, a myriad of different ecosystems await.
In East Africa, mountain climbing requires specialist guides and porters. We can organize expeditions to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, as well as Mount Meru and Mount Kenya across the border to the north. We can arrange for you to climb Mount Elgon from both Kenyan and Ugandan flanks or to trek the remote Rwenzori range in Uganda's forested west.
In South Africa, many of the mountains are best explored independently: we can advise on routes through the Cedarberg and Drakensberg mountain ranges, hiking independently and staying in mountain lodges and local b&b's. Our clients, many of whom have climbed and hiked worldwide, find trekking in Africa to be a uniquely rewarding experience.
